Catch the First Glimpse of Supergirl’s Villian Red Tornado

Pictures have appeared online giving us the first look at Red Tornado, an important villain that Supergirl must face. Check out the photo below!


The look is interesting, and without a lot of context, we hope it looks better in the show. Our first thought? Does anyone else think Red Tornado’s head really looks like a quaffle?


Warner Bros. described the Red Tornado as “the most advanced android the world has ever seen. Designed by scientist T.O. Morrow for the U.S. Army as the ultimate super weapon, he soon becomes sentient, posing a grave danger to National City — including the people Supergirl cares about most.”

Red Tornado and his creator T.O. Morrow will both be played by Iddo Goldberg. In the comics, T.O. is merely the creator of Red Tornado, so it’s unclear how these two personas will unite. Maybe the android was created in his image, or he experiments on himself to create the villain.

Supergirl premieres Monday, October 26 on CBS.
